Har­g­reaves Lans­down, rec­om­mends Marl­bor­ough Multi Cap In­come, which gen­er­ates in­come by in­vest­ing mostly in medium-sized and smaller com­pa­nies. “This makes it a riskier propo­si­tion, but one with greater long term re­wards, and would dove­tail well with more large-cap ori­en­tated in­come funds like Wood­ford Eq­uity In­come, from star fund man­ager Neil Wood­ford. Marl­bor­ough cur­rently yields 4.4 per cent a year.”

Kha­laf also names Thread­nee­dle UK Eq­uity In­come, which aims to de­liver strong growth and rapidly in­creas­ing div­i­dends, and cur­rently yields 3.9 per cent.

An­a­lysts at Quot­edData have picked out two in­vest­ment trusts that could de­liver plenty of ex­cite­ment, pro­vided you are ready for a roller­coaster ride. The Rus­sian mar­ket has been rebounding on the back of a strength­en­ing oil price but is still among the cheap­est emerg­ing mar­kets, and could rise fur­ther from here. JPMor­gan Rus­sian Se­cu­ri­ties is one of the few funds that is in­vest­ing purely in Rus­sia and has grown 48 per cent over the past year alone, although you can­not rely on an­other year of blis­ter­ing out­per­for­mance.

So-called fron­tier mar­kets such as Ar­gentina, Viet­nam, Ro­ma­nia, Nige­ria, Kenya, Bangladesh and Pak­istan are play­ing catch up with the emerg­ing mar­ket coun­tries such as China and In­dia.

Aberdeen Fron­tier Mar­kets, which in­vests in coun­tries like these, has re­turned 30 per cent over the past year and now could be a good time to in­vest.

As with the Rus­sian fund, only in­vest for the long term and be pre­pared to hold on tight for a bumpy ride.
